Renae Shadler & Collaborators with Roland Walter


Tanzplattform Deutschland 2022


55 mins.

Where does your body begin? Where does mine end? In this intimate and playful duet Renae Shadler and Roland Walter explore our physical surface, the skin, as a porous barrier between interior and exterior – both boundary and point of contact. The two apparently disparate performers find common movement languages that question the usual ideas of a ‘mixed-abled’ choreography. Inspired by the qualities of sea anemones, liquids and the surfaces of the earth, "SKIN" imagines a world in which there is no more or less able body.
